Or that is the message the 1% seem to be sending us in interview after interview. Not only are we lazy and envious but we're whiners to boot. In a CNBC interview yet another clueless CEO reinforces to us just how clueless he is. More below the fold.
In another breathtaking show of arrogance and ignorance the 1% crew show us why they are not fit to be running the planet.
"We've got a country that the poverty level is wealth in 99 percent of the rest of the world," he said. "So we're talking about woe is me, woe is us, woe is this." He added that "the guy that's making, oh my God, he's making $35,000 a year, why don't we try that out in India or some countries we can't even name. China, anyplace, the guy is wealthy."So, you see, we treat you wayyyyy better than those people over there. Suck it up whiners.
I also find it interesting he picks 35K as his example. Most worker bees in the US don't make 35K. In fact, 48% of us make poverty or low income wages. Of course, reality is not really these folks' strong suit as we've seen in the past few weeks of interviews.
We had Tom Perkins going all Godwin and comparing the bad rap the uber rich are getting with nazism. Not to be outdone, O'Leary from "Shark Tank" had to tell us how super awesome wealth inequality is because it gives the lazy slackers something to aspire to...or some such nonsense.
I'm just curious to see how much longer the 99% are going to continue to be good worker bees while being told what lazy, useless eaters they are by their betters? Any bets?
